MC and Second City Citizens member Rich Jones raps with an unflustered poise—he drops rhymes with a heap of confidence, but never lets his assurance throw off his calm vibe, which feels as much of an extension of his personality off the mike as it is when he's rolling with the beat. Jones has a taste for throwback instrumentals that jell with his laid-back persona—his sonic interests pop up on February's Love Jones, a three-song collaborative EP with producer Krush Love. Jones doubles down on his love for old-school hip-hop with "W.o.W.," the second single from his forthcoming Pigeons & Waffles EP, which he made entirely with producer Montana Macks. Jones delivers rubbery lines with a loose-limbed flow over the song's lackadaisical drum pattern and a smoky sax sample. The appearance of Hurt Everybody's Supa Bwe, who seems to be just about everywhere these days, adds another spark to the mix. Take a listen to the Reader premiere of "W.o.W." below, it's also today's 12 O'Clock Track.
